It was actually a pretty decent sequel

>First half of the game is good fanservice, focusing on the consequences of the first game
>Second half gets a new map with a bigger focus on it's own story while making good use of the things obtained in the first map
>Game tracks a lot of your consequences before reaching the ending. Down to even some minor things
>Though there isn't much to personality with the 4 custom rangers, you can sort of give them personalities with their skills and advantages.
>Recruits are plentiful and are affected by your choices too
>Has some neat takes on rehashing old cultures.
It's by no means as good as the first, but it is a worthy successor nonetheless.

What I'm looking for is hard to describe, but I'll try anyway.

What are some games that have settings that feel "off", ominous, or otherwise foreign without going full retard about it?

Games that have given me this impression are things like Pathologic, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, Planescape: Torment, Morrowind (when you get beneath the superficial layer of the lore).

Bloodborne and Dark Souls are the biggest in this regard though. It's difficult for me to imagine what those two place's settings would have been like before or after the events of the games. I can't put my finger on it.

I currently just reached Dahngrest. Really love how the game went from being basic attacks then an Arte to currently giving you arcane and burste artes. They're also fatal strikes but I don't use them much. They seem like too much of a hassle. I'm guessing more stuff will be added as I progress. Fun game but Estelle is annoying. Only character that I actually dislike so far. I was happy when they baited you with her leaving. I knew it probably wouldn't be for long but I was hyped for Yuri and Karol's duo. The designated healer characters just have a way of getting on my nerves. Still I would recommend this game. I was worried at first since it was a 2009 game but yeah so far so good

Seeing the entire emotional journey culminating in the final confrontation with Kefka was fantastic. The contrast between the insidiousness and hopelessness of kefka and the hopeful determination and refusal of death of the heroes(and by extention mankind) felt very organic, thanks to the great writing and pacing. No character felt out of place in the story and all of em were extremely fleshed out. Cyan, celes and locke being personal favorites of mine. Cyan's tragedy and journey of coping with the loss of his kingdom and family was a highlight for me personally.

>Sword of Moonlight also came with a japanese remake of the original game, and thanks once again to John's original translation, I have been able to update the newer version in english as well. The project has been fully converted to english, and where necessary, voice overs have been added to the videos within the game to provide translation there as well.
>The game covers 5 levels of the Royal Graveyard, offering up classic King's Field interaction with a variety of enemies and NPCs, and a good amount of items to collect and magic to master.

I’ve played this up to the Ravager, and I’ll admit I’ve had some fun along the way. But this game, even with the Restored Content mod, is a fucking mess.

>Janky, stuttering, disjointed cutscenes all the time. Rather than being illustrative, they tend to confuse the issue.

>Dialogue trees with lots of repetitions, redundancies and gaps.

>Frequently getting dialogue options for quests and triggers you have not activated yet – I suspect some of them are not in the game at all. It’s typical that you’ll be given an option to remind someone, or have someone tell you, of an agreement that was never made.

>The so-called ‘philosophical’ discourse often seems like it is little more than a smokescreen – an attempt to hide the narrative incoherence behind a veil of specious claptrap. After hours of listening to people talk at cross-purposes, it might come as a relief to have Kreia talk at length in a continuous, didactic voice. But if you listen closely you’ll find that her message is just as hazy and muddled as the rest of it.

>Most players will play pure Dark or Light, but if you play at these extremes it accelerates your companion relationships to the point where they become nonsensical. Characters who joined your party 15 minutes ago will tantrum at you in a bitterly personal way, because you betrayed the supposed bond of romance or bromance between the two of you.

>Bland as fuck levels. The best-looking levels are the ones that recycle content from the first game.

Sorry, but Bioware did it better.

Which one do you prefer? Postgame or replayability? Keep in mind there isn't really one longer than the other.

A new YIIK update just dropped I guess...?
From what I can find it mostly seems like QoL shit, with more substantial story content coming later. It looks like they made the battle system snappier and more strategic, added a reduced monologue script, and replaced the LEMONADE scene.
It's cool and all that they're coming out of hiding to try and take feedback to heart, but I get the feeling that it's not going to be anywhere near enough to salvage it.

This raises an interesting question though. What WOULD it have taken to fix YIIK? It feels like a lot of the pieces for something special are there, but they really didn't come together.

.hack IMOQ
So I started playing this, i'm about 6 hours in, just beat the Killer Snaker boss and i'm curious, does the gameplay ever get better?
I fucking love the atmosphere, I love the mailing and the message board stuff and how your party members go do their own shit in town like in a real MMO
and the story is...alright? I haven't really experienced much of it since nothing's really happened but it seems interesting
but the gameplay is just...jesus christ, it's really bad. The bosses feel like they've all just been brick walls that you spam X and potions at until you can drain them.

Recently found myself interested in trying the offline mode for Dragon Quest X. And since the info I found on the English side of the internet was somewhat lacking, I thought I'd post about the game here.

First of all, the offline mode is featured in the Wii version of the game and is still fully accessible, even though the Wii servers are offline. Saw some posts online claiming otherwise, but that's not true.
Even the official announcement about the Wii servers going down said you "might be able to still play" the offline mode, though no support will be offered, which is just to say "play it, but don't contact us about it".

To play on a real Wii or a Wii U, you'll need a real copy of the game though. Before I couldn't easily find any confirmation that the Wii version will work on Wii U too, but now I can confirm that it does.
You will need a Japanese region Wii or Wii U though. For a Wii, I know you can use homebrew to change your region, but I'm not sure about a Wii U. I have a Japanese Wii U myself, so I didn't need to solve this issue.

There are four different physical releases you can buy for the Wii.
Version 1:
Version 2:
All in One Pack (which is version 1 + version 2):
Version 3:

Now the offline mode is a prequel to the online mode of version 1, so while the Dragon Quest X wiki says it existed "until version 3"【オフラインモード】
I'm not sure if this means for example that version 3 alone would also offer you the option to play it. Leaning on the side of caution, I'd recommend getting either just version 1 or the package of 1 and 2, which is what I got.

I'll post about the game itself next.
